As reported, Randy Orton was injured during his match with Wade Barrett on Smackdown. Here’s the official update from WWE.com and WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson:
“Randy (Orton) suffered a herniated disc on the L4-L5 level on the left side, and that’s resulting in pain and weakness down his leg. He’s going to need some time off for rehab, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy.”
Early reports indicate he’ll be out for at least six months, but that would be if he undergoes surgery. Otherwise it would only be a few weeks.
